Systems Staff Meeting Notes
April 13, 1998

Present: Brian Burton, Bill Covey, Debra Harris, Sharon Henry, Bobbie Parker, Suzy Shaw

  1. Printing problems - Smathers NT2 box was moved to a new router port on Friday afternoon, but this morning it was discovered that AppleTalk is not defined - for some unknown reason - on that port. We have an emergency request in to NERDC to get AppleTalk up on that port.
  2. There is a limited availability of Exchange Mail due to a browser problem. Microsoft Explorer 4 can access email - if you go to the address:, it will bring you to a yellow screen where you plug in your password - that leads to an Outlook type of screen. It will work for Macs, but not on Netscape or lower MSE versions.
  3. Data wiring of Systems is complete - digital phones should follow in the next few weeks.
Ongoing Systems Updates
Equipment Received/Installed/Repaired
  1. Still awaiting the major pile of cattle.
  2. No news on the licenses for Office’97. Should happen by next week.
  1. UFLIBS list is replicated on the Smathers server - currently it is in both places - should reach everyone now. Special handling in place for those not yet converted.
Software Projects Status
  1. Special Collections database to checkout from/track the collection - Brian is working on a Delphi application, the current one is on a Mac.
